snip! clip! chip! yank! rip! YELP!
Me trimming and shaping a bush growing in front of our house and accidentally catching my canine assistant’s lip in the loppers!!! oh dear would that I could shape her the way I could shape the bush. They do say that plants scream!!! At least I could not hear this one. Poor Bella retired to the shade and maintained a wary distance from my activity, to my relief.
